This movie played theaters and drive-in for years, well-into the 80's. Sometime in the seventies, I was maybe fifteen, and I saw this very same trailer at a second-run theater along with a trailer for NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD that featured graphic scenes of cannibalism, and a naked zombie chick. I was there with my parents watching some seventies action movie, quite possibly starring Charleton Heston. My mind was blown. I desperately wanted to see this movie, but I didn't even bother to ask. The kid in my class who did see the movie described every nasty scene with what would later turn out to be accuracy worthy of a journalist.
I wouldn't see Blood Feast until many years later on video, but in college, I would go expecting to see another movie on Campus and be surprised by 2000 MANIACS. (the University Newspaper had gotten it wrong). THAT was a hell of a surprise!

My favorite bit of sleaze from HG Lewis wasn't any of his "horror" movies but the "ripped from the headlines"-esque tacky exploitation fest "Suburban Roulette" from 1968 or 9, which was all about that swinging and wife-swapping business people had maybe heard about, complete with a sleazy lounge music opening titular song that's equally skin-crawlingly lecherous and laughable
What's our favorite evening game?
"Night baseball?" You're all wet!
"Let's Swap Partners" is the name
Where's my wife? Has anyone seen her?
Is she ring-a-dingin' with that swingin' set?
The other guy's wife is always greener
I love you madly, baby
So come on and hold me tight
But don't feel bad now, baby,
If I love your sister tomorrow night
Let's livin' up this dead room
There's life in this swinger yet
It's fun and games now in the bedroom
There's a new lady in my life
Wouldn't trade her for a bet
"That's no lady! That my wife!"
Your husband's just a grouch, dear
My wife's a hopeless square
There they are on the couch, dear
And they're just sitting there!
Let me borrow your comb, love
It's nearly 6pm, my pet
Your husband will soon be home, love
